The Big Bang Theory, Season 8 Episode 9 Review: “The Septum Deviation”

(Beware, spoilers below!)

Leonard has a deviated septum and is planning to get surgery to fix it. Sheldon doesn’t like it, because he’s become used to Leonard’s snoring and doesn’t want Leonard to die. Sheldon calculates the probability of Leonard dying (1/300) and so ease Sheldon’s mind he promises to think about it. However Leonard goes through with it anyway and Sheldon demands to be taken to him. Whilst they wait anxiously for Leonard, an earthquake happens and the hospital starts to blackout. After Sheldon slams into a door there’s a hilarious moment where both of them are sitting on the couch together.

Meanwhile, Raj’s parents are reaching their 40 year anniversary and he wants advice for a present to give them. However, he instead receives the news that his parents have split up. This makes Bernie worried about her future with Howard, and she asks him to tell her things that bother him. Instead he turns it around to tell her the stuff that they love about one another … or maybe not.

“18 parts per million!” “We had a really nice swim…” There are many funny laughs in this episode, “He’s feeling … blueberry.” and it’s nice to see the touching moments where Sheldon shows he cares about him. “I’m going to spend the rest of my life with him!” “And I’m not?!” The golden moment comes at the end, when Sheldon opens a box of urns he ordered in case Leonard dies, and we found out who Howard went to couples therapy with. Episodes that a both funny and take the story forward are the ones where The Big Bang Theory excel, and they’ve done it again. Bring on next week!
